"America ! America ! God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!
... America ....!"
~"America The Beautiful"
~ Lyrics by Katharine Lee Bates,
Music composed by Samuel A. Ward
Festive fireworks festoon the summer sky like confetti
as if to say, "Bravo, America!" during the 2015 Fourth of July
Fireworks set off from J. Birney Crum Stadium,
How wonderful it would be to have fireworks - and the fire of patriotism -
in our hearts every day!
As the fireworks ended I heard a little boy say "Bravo!"
I couldn't have said it better myself.
